Re: King Arthur (Kenrith), his queen, and the Knights of the Round Table

I decided to add Queen Marchesa, mostly for flavor. Becoming monarch is suitable for the theme but the extra card draw is nice too.

Re: Urza, Combo Painter

So the major wincon is the conceding of the opponents after got infinite? That's not a wincon, that's just what usually happens. With Capsize , you can bounce and recast Urza repeatedly, creating an army of construct tokens. With Timetwister , you can cast any spell repeatedly, such as Swan song , ...

Re: King Arthur (Kenrith) and his knights dealing lethal damage on turn 3

I updated this list. The deck has proven to be lightning fast and very resilient. It's a blast to play.
I took out Haakon, stromgald scourge because he's not human so Angel of Glory's Rise doesn't bring him out of the graveyard. But I might put him back in one day.

Re: Kenrith, the Returned King

I made a human/knights tribal Kenrith deck that I refer to as King Arthur and the knights of the round table deck. It's super oppressive - it uses some combination of hermit druid/flash hulk/cephalid breakfast to empty the library into the graveyard, then cast dread return on angel of glory's rise t...

Re: King Arthur (Kenrith) unleashing all his knights on turn 2-4

Thanks for the reply! Are your Knights able to kill everybody the turn they come into play? Because Hermit Druid mills your entire library, so you need to win that turn to avoid losing due to drawing with no library. The last part of the combo is cracking the lion's eye diamond to cast echo of eons ...

King Arthur (Kenrith), his queen, and the Knights of the Round Table

http://raymondcain.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/arthurs-1024x436.jpg [br] Is it coincidence that Kenrith looks just like King Arthur from the 1975 film, Monty Python and the Holy Grail? ...I think not. Nor do I think it's coincidental that King Kenrith and Queen Marchesa have the same illustrator...

This card might be worthwhile since you can still cast spells with tapped lands.

Re: Urza, Combo Painter

I don't think that there's anything that makes the cut from Commander 2019. What do you think? Agreed. I was kicking around the idea of tapping scaretiller for mana and returning fetchlands to the battlefield, but that's a little janky. I'll probably be putting arcane signet from Throne of Eldraine...

Re: Urza, painting his way to victory

Hey. Just letting you know that Power Artifact does not work with Mana Vault as far as infinite mana. The oracle wording is that it triggers "At the beginning of your upkeep", so it is only an ability that you can use once. Ok, thanks for letting me know. All of mine say 'during your upkeep' and I ...

Re: Turbo Sliver - unleash the swarm by turn 2-4

Perhaps some context will provide insight on why I came up with this deck. Slivers are fun once they get going, but this is what usually happens: you cast stuff, then it gets boardwiped. Or, you get sliver hivelord in play, then it gets exiled, and then comes the boardwipe. When you invest more mone...

Re: Turbo Sliver - unleash the swarm by turn 2-4

Your deck is rife with oops I win combos. Flash hulk is the same thing as mana echoes or intruder alarm. Same for hermit library dump combos. These are not what your self described deck would be. Or at least it's not any different then the lolz I won on turn 15 decks that you make fun of. I don't r...

Re: Turbo Sliver - unleash the swarm by turn 2-4

Slow clap from this guy! Excellent idea. I am no Sliver afficianado, but is there a Hulk pile that really bursts P/T stats? Like a package that has Might Sliver variants? Sliver Legion is great for this; is there a way to safely clone it with a Hulk pile like Spark Double ? Spark double is interest...

Sliver cEDH <-- no it's not a typo :)

Last week ago it occurred to me that I've never seen a good sliver deck. Everyone brags about how amazing theirs is with stories like "OMG this one time on turn 15, I had SO MANY SLIVERS!!!" Comments like that make me roll my eyes so much I nearly pull a muscle. Sure, sometimes a sliver deck gets lu...

Last week ago it occurred to me that I've never seen a good sliver deck. Everyone brags about how amazing theirs is with stories like "OMG this one time on turn 15, I had SO MANY SLIVERS!!!"

Re: Urza, painting his way to victory

I've been thoroughly unimpressed with Sai, Master Thopterist . Outside of the Future Sight + Top combo, I often find he just sits there and does nothing. I'd rather have pretty much anything else instead of him. I playtested Sai more (this time I playtested drawing him on turn 3 a bunch of games in...

Honestly I would give some thought to playing all three. Trophy fetches Static Orb , Vedalken Shackles , Trinisphere , Rings of Brighthearth , Basalt Monolith . If that's the entire list I can see why it's not great here, but these are still great cards to fetch so it'd still be on my mind. I feel ...
